Suspected Boko Haram terrorists have executed three passengers in a commercial bus, who were identified as being of the Christian faith in Yobe State. 

It was learnt that the terrorists stopped the bus near Kamuya village in the Biu Local Government Area of Borno State and whisked away four persons identified as Christians. 

Three of them were later executed by the terrorists in a nearby bush. The whereabouts of the fourth person is not known as of the time of this report.

Sources in Kamuya village said that the executed christians were travelling from Biu in Borno State to Damaturu, the Yobe State capital, when the tragic incident happened.

“At about 9am, they stopped the bus a few kilometers away from Kamuya village and led four passengers into the bush as we watched from afar. We immediately scampered to leave the area.

“It is really sad that they killed three of the abducted, as we later saw on Facebook. May God expose these terrorists and bring an end to their nefarious activities,” a source who pleaded anonymity said.

The Secretary of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Yobe State, Reverend Ibrahim Abako also confirmed the incident in a statement.

“I want to inform you that, we are not happy. Very sad news! On behalf of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Yobe State chapter, we condemn in totality, the killing of three Christian youths along Damaturu-Biu Federal Highway.

“CAN is urging the state government, military and the police to take measures to protect the citizens regardless of their religious affiliation,” Abako stated.
